Due to the response I have received over trying to reschedule the Christmas concert, I have decided to move the date back to it's original day.
There will be a home basketball game against East Montgomery taking place at the same time. I do not know what effect this will have on our concert in terms of sound level and distractions outside the auditorium being heard during our concert as well as attendance.
My goal in rescheduling was to provide an evening guaranteed to be free of conflict and disruptions. However, there are only so many days in the month and I have been unsuccessful in doing so. Therefore, the concert will take place on the original date of Monday December 18 at 7:00 pm and we will deal with whatever issues there may be. Have a great evening.

Please remember that your child owes band fees that need to be paid ASAP. It is $100 for the band and $150 for the guard. Please do not forget. We can not afford to provide the experience we do unless everyone does their part.
The kids were given Pizza forms for fundraising this past Tuesday. Please ask them about them. This money is 100% theirs to pay fees with and raise money for the trip this spring. They earn 50% profit with this fundraiser! Please sell as much as you can. I want every kid to be on the trip!
Section leaders and seniors will meet to make the band room a little more inviting and personal tomorrow, Thursday, at 1 pm. Wear clothes that you don't mind messing up.
